Anyone had success with getting a VPN / Proxy to work with Iplayer and Boxxe on ATV?

Witopia just doesn't give the bandwidth for streaming videos - speed test seems fine but if you look at the BBC diag page the avg stream speed is around 500K - not enough.

It would seem the best option for speed would be via a proxy, anyone get it to work?

I get over 23 Mbps to witopia's london servers over a 25Mbps FiOS connection but, yes, BBC iPlayer can tax the encryption.

Witopia has a free proxy for VPN customers but I haven't tried it. Hope it helps. http://wiki.personalvpn.net/wiki/Using_Your_WiTopia_Proxy

Can I ask you how you integrate the VPN into AppleTV?
